Protecting Customer & Corporate Data
What processes and policies do you have in place to protect your data? How critical is securing APIs to your API management strategy? Are you ready to react in case of a breach?
A comprehensive policy and process for securing rest APIs is all that protects your data and internal systems from threats. It only takes one data leak for your business to experience fines, litigation, brand damage, or customer churn.
Comprehensive Strategy for Securing APIs

Securing APIs to Reduce Security & Compliance Risk
Organizations need an API solution with comprehensive support for the latest security and regulatory standards, such as JOSE (JWK, JWS, JWE), PCI-DSS, and GDPR. This mitigates risk and lowers administration costs. The tool must ensure securing rest APIs and other types (e.g. SOAP, AMQP) from threats and attacks.
